Abstract

The technological advancements, the occurrence of new emerging occupational risks and diseases, and the changes in the regulatory framework for occupational health and safety induce a constant evolution of occupational medicine. Consequently, the skills and training needs of the occupational physicians should be periodically revalued and upgraded in order to identify technical and operational issues and problems of this discipline. In this context, the aim of this national survey, carried out using a self-administered questionnaire submitted to a sample of 1,237 occupational physicians, has been to gain helpful information to ensure a continuous improvement of the quality and effectiveness of measures aimed at protecting the health and safety of workers. The questionnaire, that consists of 43 questions divided into 5 different areas (personal and professional information, training and updating needs of occupational physicians, professional activities and relationships with the corporate prevention system, relationships with the supervisory board of the Local Health Authority, relationships with the National Health Service), allowed to obtain personal and professional data, to assess the training needs and demands of occupational physicians and to evaluate their relationships with the other stakeholders of the Italian prevention system and with the National Health Service. The preliminary results of this survey appear extremely important. In fact, this findings, highlighting the current problems of occupational physician, constitute the starting point to identify, develop and implement management methodologies, operative procedures and training programs that are effective and modern.
